It’s not often you come across a tactical WWII game that features the fascist invasion of the Soviet Union. Partisans 1941 changes this. Usually, games that do focus on the Soviet Union’s efforts in WWII focus on the counterattack and inevitable capturing of Berlin. These events occur much later in the war than the events of Partisans 1941. Which is one of the reasons Partisans 1941 can be a refreshing experience.
Early this month there was a lot of discussion about Days Gone, and since it was on sale on Steam I decided to ride into the Hot Take mines. So I packed my (virtual) motorcycle and headed to (also virtual) Oregon. I know a lot of people like Days Gone, but to be honest, IContinue reading “This Week I Played Days Gone”
Backbone can in the loosest terms be described as a furry detective game, which is why in April of 2018 I wasted no time in backing it on Kickstarter.

This game, since I first played it, has been in my top ten list. I am glad to finally own it on PC.
Friday before Labor Day I woke up to a glorious surprise. That surprise was that Star Wars Battlefront 2 was for sale on Steam for less than $15. I remember a huge amount of grumblings when the game first came out. I remember most of this being about how loot crates work. I wanted toContinue reading “This Week I Played Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the second one)”
Trains, I love them. Not just any trains mind you, my love is reserved for steam engines. I’ve spent far too much time mindlessly driving the steam engines in two Red Dead Redemption games. I’ve built vast rail empires in Sid Mid Meier’s Railroads. Neither of those quite scratched the itch I have for whatContinue reading “This Week I Played Bounty Train”
Bad North bills itself as a real-time tactics rogue-lite. I’m not normally a fan of indie games that compare themselves in any way to Rogue. Usually, it seems rogue-like games make poor design the staring feature. Did the world generator give you a bad time with no possible path to survive? That’s apparently okay asContinue reading “This Week I Played Bad North”
